Chandigarh, January 11: Acceding to one of the key demands of the doctors hinting strike, Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal has given in-principle approval to creation of Specialist cadre post for MD or MS doctors. Besides this, the doctors will not be given any administrative work and will practice in their concerned Specialty.
Long pending demand of Doctors fulfilled
The in-principle approval has been granted today wherein the government will create a Special Sub Cadre for Specialists who will be designated as Consultant or Senior Consultants. Earlier, a doctor with MBBS qualification and MD/MS qualification used to be in the same cadre. However, with the creation of Specialist cadre post these doctors will be able to focus on their work which will definitely protect their interest. Moreover, the Specialist cadre doctors will now be posted in big and renowned hospitals rather than in Primary Health Centres (PHCs) which will ensure their swift promotions thereby nurturing their talent.
The landmark decision will also be beneficial for patients as they will get the consultation of Specialists and the doctors will be closely able to monitor and manage the working of the hospitals. The Chief Minister said that the doctors have a very pivotal role to play in the society especially in the present crisis situation and the Government is committed for their welfare.
With this decision of the Chief Minister, this long standing demand of the doctors has been fulfilled.
